Your .667 San Francisco Giants

42-21 -- that equates out to 108-54, ladies and gentlemen.

 Tim Lincecum wins his 5th game over Zach Wheeler of all people, he of the Carlos Beltran trade. Gregor Blanco drives in three runs from the leadoff slot -- all a bit hard to believe. Chris Haft has some nice coverage at 

When Zack Wheeler was drafted sixth overall in the 2009 First-Year Player Draft by the Giants, the right-hander was dubbed "Little Lincecum," thanks to his similarly herky-jerky delivery.
Dealt to New York in July 2011 for Carlos Beltran, "Little Lincecum" opposed his nickname-sake Tim Lincecum for the first time Sunday afternoon at AT&T Park.
Wheeler's Lincecum-esque motion has since become a thing of the past, much like his Sunday outing became after Lincecum ended the 24-year-old's day with a fourth-inning single for his first hit of the season as the Giants defeated the Mets, 6-4, completing the three-game sweep.
Wheeler allowed four earned runs on six hits and two walks in just 3 2/3 innings, the shortest start of his young career. Lincecum flirted with trouble in his six innings, but as has been a trend lately, he averted too much damage, surrendering three earned runs on six hits and one walk en route to earning his fifth win of the season.
